OSM2022 - OS11 Observing and Predicting the Global Coastal Ocean

#1 Post by jsouza »

Dear colleagues

We invite contributions from a broad range of scientists to a dynamic and trans-disciplinary Ocean Sciences Meeting 2022 session that we expect will set the stage for transformational ocean observing-modelling developments for coastal areas under the UN Decade of Ocean Sciences for Sustainable Development. The challenges facing ocean observing and modelling are numerous, and most human interaction with the ocean happens in the coastal areas. We invite you to contribute to help solve these challenges in the UN Ocean Decade and submit an abstract to OS11 Observing and Predicting the Global Coastal Ocean session. The call for abstract submissions is now open with a deadline of 29 September, 23:59 Eastern Daylight Time.

Responding to climate change, and effective management of coastal resources will require the development of a modern, agile, knowledge and information infrastructure that includes effective ocean observing systems, tailored models and information services, and fostering the use of standards and best practices. This session is aligned with the CoastPredict initiative (CoastPredict.org), now endorsed as a Programme under the UN Ocean Decade, in partnership with GOOS. CoastPredict focuses on understanding, observing and predicting common and diverse ocean features in the world’s global coastal ocean environments, to produce predictions of natural variability and human-induced change in coastal areas, and upgrading the infrastructure for exchange of data with standard protocols.
We welcome contributions on a broad range of topics., such as: enhanced ocean observations at regional and local scale, extending the existing regional observing capabilities and linking to GOOS; dynamic downscaling of regional models, including physical processes not represented in the global simulations; advances in situ and satellite data assimilation schemes to constrain model solutions, improving reliability and regional reanalysis with better optimised initial conditions for operational forecasts; New instrumentation and measurement approaches. Contributions that link coastal observations and predictions with solutions that improve the sustainable use of the coastal ocean are encouraged.

Track: Ocean Sustainability and the UN Decade (OS)

Session: OS11 Observing and Predicting the Global Coastal Ocean
